St Lucia’s healthcare sector is expected to receive increased consideration with the promise of greater movement toward the establishment of a Universal Healthcare system.
The disclosure was made by Prime Minister Dr Kenny Anthony, during his New Years Address to the Nation on Sunday night.
Dr Anthony has proposed a joint approach to healthcare which includes a meeting of the opposition and independent minds in an effort to make healthcare more accessible to St Lucians.
Dr Anthony also highlighted a number of projects which have begun or are being planned for the healthcare sector by the SLP administration.
According to Dr Anthony the key factor to improving access to health care and offering quality service to St Lucians is the resolution of the issue of cost. He adds that too many in our midst cannot afford to pay the cost of that service.
